  2. Multiple Levels of HIEs are Necessary
  3. Privacy and Security is Top-of-Mind

Twitter co-founder offers health IT innovation insight

Twitter co-founder offers health IT innovation insight | #HITsm | Scoop.it

Health IT Exchange: It’s no surprise that the health care industry has needed an injection of new ideas for quite some time. At the Health Information and Management Systems Society’s HIMSS 2012 conference in Las Vegas, Twitter co-founder Biz Stone shared some insight from his business and personal experience that many in the crowd seemed ready to apply to health IT innovation and entrepreneurship.


Stone’s life lessons, for the most part, may remind readers of a calendar of inspirational sayings — “opportunity can be manufactured,” “creativity is a renewable resource,” “to succeed spectacularly, be ready to fail spectacularly,” etc.


One moral to apply to health IT innovation is to realize that “there is compound interest in altruism.” Align a project with a cause, Stone said, and its impact will, in time, be realized.

Jon Mertz writes about next week's big conference:


"HIMSS12 is a big event, an understatement in so many ways. It is a time when a community comes together: vendors, health IT teams, and many others who participate in and influence the healthcare industry. From a vendor perspective, there is a lot of work that goes into the show, ensuring everything goes as flawlessly as possible and setting the opportunity to interact with customers and prospects. From a participant perspective, there is an opportunity to learn a great deal and network with colleagues. It all comes together for one week at HIMSS."

Mobile tech popular, but governance gaps remain, says HIMSS

Mobile tech popular, but governance gaps remain, says HIMSS | #HITsm | Scoop.it

The 1st Annual HIMSS Mobile Technology Survey, released on Monday, finds that almost all respondents have accessed clinical information through a mobile device. But just 38 percent of them report having a policy in place that regulates the devices' use.

 

The 12-page report, released on the first day of the mHealth Summit, points to widespread mHealth use in healthcare settings, but also indicates that upper-level management is having problems keeping up with the technology. According to the survey, about half of the respondents said their organization is developing a mobile technology policy, while close to two-thirds plan to have a policy in place in the next six months.
